Just a quick note- the demo is just the tutorial part of the game, so if you're wondering why you cant fly or anything it's because you get to choose your travel power when you leave the tut at Lvl.5.

Note: with the actual game you can skip the tutorial and it will place you in the main starting area at Lvl.5 with a handful of gear, you don't get quite as much experience and gear as if you did the tutorial but you do get to cut out the first half hour or more.

Another really helpful thing is when you mouse over another player's character it shows the account name, so no matter how many alts you make you can be assured that your friends will still recognise you and know when you're on

Plus that'll help when we all meet up- my character won't be called Baron Spikey (unsurprisingly) but in chat and the aforementioned checking my character out you'll see Baron_Spikey under the Char. name.

Edit: I'm thinking of setting up a separate thread when we get The Heretics (holder name until we find out if people like it and if it's even available) Super Group up and running, for people to post up character names and/or account names- just so we all know who to send a chat to in game etc.
OR just keep it all in this thread, we'll see what the demand is.

Ah was about to ask how I fly then read your post mate.

I have my character drawn... a fat fucker with tribal tats, long arms and midget legs. Probably gonig to go with beasty type powers but im tempted to give him claws and swipey stuff instead.

Not sure about the skulls really. I might drop them and go for a feather skirt...

Sounds- and looks- good, personally I'm looking to get as many melee characters between myself and the enemy as possible
That's why I'm taking flight, so I can hang out of reach of fighty enemies whilst still laying on the pain, otherwise I would have gone Teleport so I can close on people (and run away) completely unseen and unstoppably.

Edit: I set up a new account and I'm currently downloading a huge patch, about 2.2Gb- hopefully have some time to make my character tonight.

Reading through the guide mate it seems melee classes are inferior so I think I'm going to have to redesign

They've included a huge patch for the Free 2 Play release today (1.2Gb in a single patch) and it's changed loads- melee characters might actually be as good as ranged now.

Or at least it says it's changed loads, I've got loads of patch to download (the CO patch server is notoriously slow) and god help anyone who starts the game from scratch- you're in for a BIG patch download (3.4Gb in total).

Oh fuck.

From iron, cometh strength. From strength, cometh will. From will, cometh faith. From faith, cometh honour. From honour, cometh iron. This is the Unbreakable Litany, and may it forever be so.

I might give this a try. DDO was ok but failed to catch my interest for very long so I will see about this one.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Yeah I decided I'm going to stick with the beast anyway. I like his look and my attempt to create a smaller character ended up looking like an emaciated crack whore. At least the kind I used to stalk in the Leeds backalleys.

The servers must be strained as I can't even get the launcher to work.

Yeah every dick and his dog is probably trying to get the game or download the patch right now, I wish I had Kickback's download speed because it's currently a race between the patch finishing and the heat death of the universe for me.

Here's the updates with the f2p patch added today, not going to mean too much to people who haven't played before but I'll include it anyway.
